Shipping is only available within New Zealand, but we do offer free freight with orders over $200. That's only to mainland delivery addresses though sorry.

It also doesn't apply to Extension Pole Saws or other long items. Please see our Shipping Page for these details. For the 7.7m Hayate Pole Saw, we can only deliver these to the nearest courier depot, so contact us about that when you place your order. UNFORTUNATELY, WE CANNOT SHIP TO PO BOXES - SO PLEASE PROVIDE A PHYSICAL DELIVERY ADDRESS.
